Quote of the Day
You remember the old MMORPGs? You had heroes on every servers, you had villains that everyone knew and loathed. Early UO, DAoC, EQ, early WoW, all these MMOs were defined by their servers’ communities first and everyone talked to each other, even if it was just to insult one another. There was life on these servers, there was exchange between everyone, both positive and negative.
Today, well…no more heroes, no more waves, everything streamlined. You cannot be offended, you cannot shine, you’re just a random human bot.
I always get the chills whenever I enter a random group/instanced PvP on these games. Nobody talks, nobody cares and what you can do is so diluted that it doesn’t really matter anyway. I find it really scary, especially since so many just jump into it without thinking.
